i havn't a fscking clue how to implement such a beast, but i've seen
(somewhere) tags that have their own heirarchy, so you could have (for

Image Stuff

and also having multiple tags would help classify things, like a 3D Fractal
renderer would be under "Image Stuff - 3D" "Image Stuff - Fractal" and
probably even under "Math Stuff" (yeah, i know you *love* my technical names
:P )

just my 0.02 cents
